This game here will be a back and forth game, but the as long as Martinez is healthy for the Cornhuskers look for Nebraska to have a good game here. The Northwestern team did good in their last game, but the Wildcats were playing the Bobcats who have struggled quite a bit on the year and that win does give some momentum, but it is not enough for the Wildcats to win the game. Final Score Prediction, Nebraska Cornhuskers win and cover ATS 34-7.
